A few months ago, Noble Audio released a couple of innovative products to add to their line of universal IEMs. These are the “Switch” Universals: variable-tuning IEMs namely the Noble FR and PR. They feature two sets of BA drivers and passive crossovers that allows the user to change sound signatures by simply toggling a switch on the faceplate. This is probably one of the first, if not the first IEM to basically have two monitors in one casing.
Noble PR (pure reference)
• Two separate configurations, two dedicated crossover networks
• P configuration impedance > 240 ohms
• 2 balanced-armature drivers
• R configuration impedance > 30 ohms
• 1 balanced-armature driver
• Detachable cable with industry-standard 2-pin configuration
• Rose gold plated pentalobe screws
Noble Audio knew of my search for a true reference IEM and asked me to review Noble PR and see if this is the true reference IEM I was looking for. This unit will also be sent to a number of reputable Aussie members for review. Each member will have the unit for one week excluding transit times and I'm hoping that the transition from a tour member to another will go as smoothly as possible. I believe everyone is already familiar with the tour guide so there's only one request I'd like to ask: "Please treat the tour unit like it's your very own..."
How this tour will go down... (as per previous tours)
One week each.
The unit must be sent to the next member with tracking and signature. (express post)
On receiving the unit you're to write your initial impressions (first thoughts) then full review.
Full reviews and photos are required in this tour and must be completed within 10 days of sending the unit onwards to the next member.
All tour reviews and impressions are to be posted here. Review may also be posted at Head-fi's review section.
(I will cross post them to the main thread)
Tour Members: (Order of Melbourne participants may still change)
@White Lotus <------- (currently here)
If anyone in the current list withdraws from the tour, I'll be happy to accept a replacement subject for approval (based on feedback and reputation).
